    Just a reminder that children often manifest the impact of stressors differently than adults.

    Feel free to share thoughts, ideas and plans regarding how you/your children are mitigating this threat.

    My son has been doing farm work and a video or two:

    Ours have school work to do and the usual chores around the house.

    We're trying to keep them as busy as we can though.

    Mine are too young to understand so we really haven’t told them anything.

    For all they know it’s summer break.

    Photo he sent me today at work. Our chickens sense the urgency. They do not want to be the next meal.

    That's OK, neither was I. I found out the hard way, multiple times.

    My 4 year old thinks it's a long weekend basically...lots of "stay at home" days. She wants to go to the playground all the time though, so we do tell her that we can't because of germs and that we'll be able to go back soon. We've been trying to keep her occupied with indoor activities in the mornings, and then we spend some time outdoors most afternoons, exercising and playing.

    [Read the Villian part below in your choice of cheesey '80s era action movie Chinese/Russian accent]

    Villian: these American youths. They are weak. They wear skinny jeans, hoard toilet paper for their sensitive asses and can't figure out which bathroom to use. We will release a virus to wipe out adults and easily take over their country.

    DJ Jr: Hey, if y'all want to start in Tennessee we'll go ahead and get this over with quickly because I've got chores to do afterwards. Tell your daughters I'll see them later tonight.

    Or

    The Terminator's head comes rolling back through the time portal.

    Skynet: what happened? I was ruling the world and now I just play music and order things from Amazon for people.

    Terminator: We landed on some farm in the South. It didn't go the way we thought it would...

    @Strigidae, if @DYSPHORIC JOY and DJ Jr. don't mind you should do a "label this pic" or whatever its called contest for the next knife giveaway y'all do.

    @RedEyedHog I'm with @OKcherokee

    Speaking of rabbit. We have a grocery store here in town that still keeps them in the frozen section. We usually go to a different one, but checked that one out and I was surprised. I can't remember the last time I saw that.

    That’s cool. It’s really good when cooked right. We’re about to try to raise meat rabbits. I’ve read three rabbits can produce upwards of 600 lbs of meat a year.
